Tab groups in Chrome allows for better organization of your open browser tabs, the ability to move the entire tab group and even close the entire group with a few clicks.

To get started with tab groups launch Chrome if it's not already running

Enable and Create Your First Tab Group
  • Open a new type and go to chrome://flags
  • In the search bar enter "Tab group" and change it from Default to Enable (this will cause Chrome to reload)
  • Once Chrome has reloaded right click on any tab and select "Add to new group"

  • You should now see a colored bar under the tab as well as a large dot of the same color (mine defaulted to white)
